'How does phenomenology help us to understand in more detail a human experience, particularly an intense experience or phenomenon, such as grief, pain, or shock? The principles of phenomenology have been adopted by researchers in health psychology, education, and management to help them gain better insight into the experiences of people who have had intense experiences by asking them what is it like to have this experience, rather than looking at the why causes. This talk will explain the valuable role that these branches of philosophy play in the professions. In addition, it will enable you to see how phenomenology helps researchers to better understand lived experience and meaning, which can help us respond better to the needs of those who are facing challenges.'
